Tax Increases

President Obama has said he wants to freeze the pay of all Federal employees for two years due to the budget deficit. I don't believe it for a minute. If he really wanted to do this, why didn't he announce this before the election? Then Republicans and Democrats could debate the value of this plan as part of the election campaign. He does not intend to go through with this plan. He knows if he proposed it during the campaign the Republicans would have embraced it and the Democrats would have opposed it. He could not have members of his own party running against his position. He is creating a straw man to knock down. The big government unions will not stand for this wage freeze. They are part of his base, he won't let them down. The real reason he has proposed this wage freeze so that he can raise taxes. The Bush Tax Cuts are due to expire at the end of the year. President Obama wants to allow the tax cuts to expire so that he can have more money to spend. Look for his running dog lackeys in the main stream media to start saying that we need to let the rich pay more, let the tax cuts expire so we can give the hard working middle class government employees a well earned raise. It's all just a scam to give more money to the government; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Fire Sprinklers

Why are private homes and apartments built without fire sprinklers? Every year 4,000 people are killed and 25,000 injured in house fires. Most of those killed are killed in their sleep and many are children. When built into the cost of initial construction, the cost is very reasonable. To me, this is a worse problem than murder. Many people who are murdered every year select lifestyles that are dangerous. Gang members, prostitutes, drug dealers are often the victims of murder. They generally choose that lifestyle and they know that they are dangerous ways to live. Fire can strike anyone at anytime. Sometimes it is faulty wiring, or storage of flammable liquids and those increase the danger. Other times it's just one of those things that happen or are the result of brush fires, or neighboring buildings that have fires that spread. Fire sprinklers save lives and property. Very little damage is done by the water and water damage, unlike fire damage can often be repaired. Fire sprinklers, every new home should have them, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Thanksgiving

Angelina Jolie Refuses to Celebrate Thanksgiving, Feels It's a 'Story of Murder' PopEater.com The usual Hollywood liberal response to anything good in America is to pervert it and denounce it. Thanksgiving is not about murder. It is about colonists who were starving, made friends with the local Indians and they shared a feast together. Two different races and cultures sharing a table together. Hardly murder. They also came together to give thanks to Almighty God that they were alive and able to eat, many had died in the harsh winter and of disease. In the American Civil War, the President asked for a day of Thanksgiving to God. This is the real reason that the Hollywood "elites" don't like Thanksgiving. They don't want to give thanks to God. They don't feel grateful to God for anything. They look only to themselves for anything good they have attained. They are unable to humble themselves and thank God for His blessings. Well, that's not how we do things here. I know that I am in God's hands and that everything that I have is a gift on loan from God. I thank Him everyday for everything I have; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Death Penalty

http://www.abajournal.com/news/article/judge_allows_animal_drug_to_be_used_in_lethal_injections_in_oklahoma A judge in Oklahoma has cleared the way for executions using a substitute drug to be used in lethal injection executions. This is in direct contradiction to judges in California who look for ways to thwart the will of the people and the law by delaying executions and stopping them whenever possible. The Oklahoma judge knows that the people want dangerous murdering criminals to be executed. The Oklahoma judge is trying to bring justice and closure to the victims and their relatives. Some criminals have done some things that are so terrible that they can only pay for their crimes by death. One of those that is due for execution killed his cell mate. How can you say such men should be kept in prison for life when they kill cell mate or even guards? Judges should consider the reasons that laws are made. They are made to protect the people, protect individual rights, protect society as a whole. They are made to extract justice when justice is due. Those who commit terrible murders need to die. It's that simple; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Korean Attacks

Presidents Truman and Eisenhower relied on the United Nations to end the Korean War. As a result of their failure to press for victory, over accommodation the problem on the Korean Peninsula continues to exist to this day. Communist North Korea is one notch away from being a failed state like Somalia, but rather than provide for their people North Korea constantly provokes South Korea with military attacks. All the while working toward building nuclear weapons. Some have suggested that South Korea or Japan could quickly develop nuclear weapons in response to the Communist North Koreans developing a nuclear arsenal. Do you really want South Korea or Japan to have nuclear weapons? Is that really in America’s best interest? Will it really deter the North Koreans from using nuclear weapons? It will only create more problems than is solves. If those nations build nuclear weapons, then what is to stop Taiwan, or Indonesia, or Australia from building nuclear weapons too? What will Communist China do about a nuclear armed Japan? Build more aircraft carriers or submarines, with nuclear weapons? Are those acts in the best interest of America? We cannot negotiate with North Korea. They have lied and taken us to the cleaners every time we have agreed to a deal with them. We give them food and fuel in return for them stopping work on their nuclear reactors. They take the food and fuel, delay our inspectors and continue work anyway. Only a massive conventional military strike will stop North Korea from building significant nuclear arsenals. They are working on missiles that have enough range to attack the United States. We need to flood North Korea with cruise missiles and topple their government. We should take out every command and control center and major headquarters in an unannounced attack. If we wait too long the Communist North Korea may determine to attack American ships or American islands the next time they want to send a message. The message they have received after their last two attacks on South Korea has been clear, the US will do nothing of substance. We are sending aircraft carriers to exercise with the South Koreans. So what? They will simply steam along the Korean coast for a few days, fly a few planes around then come home. Nothing will have been changed and the Obama Administration wants to cut back our carriers to the lowest number since before World War Two. What does that tell North Korea? If something happens we will send aircraft carriers to sail in the waters near Korea without actually shooting at anyone, at least until we can scrap a few more carriers, then we will not do anything. Weakness in the face of our enemies only emboldens them; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Look At This

http://www.dailysquib.co.uk/?c=124&a=2389 Body Scanner Operator Caught Masturbating at Colorado Airport While I fully support the use of the full body scanner at airports, the TSA has totally bungled the introduction of them. If I was in charge I would have handled the whole thing differently. As a security professional, I think I know a few things about security and customer service. First, there should be two scanners at every location. One for men and one for women. The men should be scanned by men and the women scanned by women. The person doing the scanning should be in a room that is separate from the other rooms in the building. No image should be saved unless there is a legitimate, valid reason, such as a suspicious hit that requires additional scanning. If the person scanned is in need of additional inspection, then the officer doing the scanning can call the officer near the screening booth and tell them what looks suspicious. If the person is found to be okay, then the image should be deleted. Any image that is saved should result in a report by the officer who saves the image explaining the full reason why it was saved. It should be a misdemeanor for each saved image that is leaked or removed from the premises without authorization, and a felony on the second conviction; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Murdering Illegals!

Ingmar Guandique Convicted of Murder in Chandra Levy Slaying "Ingmar Guandique was accused of killing the intern whose disappearance exposed an affair with a congressman. DNA, forensic evidence were lacking" AOL news tells us that a jury gave a verdict in the Candra Levy case. They go on to besmirch her reputation by telling us the unrelated information that she was linked to a congressman due to an affair with him. The real headline should have read "Illegal alien convicted of murdering Chandra Levy" The media loves illegal aliens. They even plan a new television show with an illegal alien as the main character. Much of Hollywood is anti-establishment and so they try to bring down the established order of things. Unrestrained illegal immigration is one way to do that, then we can be as poor and lawless as Mexico; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

JDT & JFK

Today is the anniversary of the assassination of President Kennedy. Also on that day Dallas Police Officer, J.D. Tippit was murdered. Officer J.D. Tippit was on patrol in his beat as usual that day. He had been an officer for over ten years. The radio call went out that the President had been killed and officers were sent to set up a perimeter to try and catch the killer. Officer J.D. Tippit went to his assigned location on the perimeter. He had a fair description of the killer and was looking for the man. Officer J.D. Tippit saw a man who looked like the suspected killer, so he stopped his patrol car. The man stopped and walked up to the car. They spoke for a moment and then Officer Tippit exited his car. The man pulled a gun and shot Officer Tippit. The man then walked up to the Officers' body and fired again to insure he was dead. Not just a popular president was murdered that day but a brave and heroic police officer as well. Officer Tippit had been a US Army paratrooper in World War Two. He was married and a father. He had been decorated for bravery as a police officer. He had committed his life to public service and put his life on the line, and he was murdered by a Communist and petty criminal. J.D. Tippit was a real hero who deserves to be remembered; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

TJ

I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. Thomas Jefferson Every conservative American should memorize this sentence from Thomas Jefferson. Every time liberal quotes the "separation of church and state" comment we should throw this one right back at them. The liberals are often ignorant of the intent of the founders and generally know little about them other than a few snippits, sound bites of history. Take time to inform them of the context of the few words they do know and it will change their meaning in most cases. Inform them of the other sayings of the founders and the intent of those great men becomes clear. The government is best when it allows people the freedom to do what they want with their own property and only interfers with them when they infringe on the rights of others; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Snoopy Turtles

http://www.snopes.com/photos/animals/seaturtles.asp There is a series of photos going around that say sea turtles are not going extinct because of global warming as some claim, but rather due to harvesting in Costa Rica. When you read the Snopes report on the series of photos they give a somewhat contradictory explanation. Actually, if you read carefully, they are being harvested and eaten. The turtles are endangered and according to the Snopes article the impact of the harvesting is not known. If the turtles are endangered, then why don't they incubate the eggs or move the eggs and rebury them or channel the turtles into certain areas when they come ashore so as to make best use of the space. Sustainable development is a good idea, but that may not be what we are actually seeing here. Also where are the officials to insure that only a specified number of eggs are harvested? It seems to me like Costa Rica has been caught with some bad publicity and is trying to put the happy face on it. If there are enough turtles breeding to permit people to harvest eggs, then perhaps they are not really endangered? If there are enough turtles to permit people to harvest the eggs then perhaps global warming is not such a problem as was once thought at least in regard to turtles; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Mars

Scientists propose one-way trips to Mars - Yahoo! News Some scientists have suggested that people take a one way trip to Mars rather than have us go there and come back to Earth. I think this is a great idea, eventually. The initial exploration of Mars should be by people who intend to return to Earth with data and samples that they have collected. Once we determine where the good places are for colonization, then one way trips should be made to Mars. They speak of initially sending older people to Mars. I like that idea. If it takes twenty or thirty years of exposure to the increased radiation of living on Mars for people to get cancer, then sending a fifty or sixty year old to Mars makes some sense. They won't live long enough to get cancer. The older people can spend the rest of their lives terraforming Mars. The other model is that of the pioneers of the western movement of the USA. Whole families moved out west together. This is also an excellent model for Mars colonization. The other important aspect of this is that the pioneers went west without government subsidy. One of the incentives was that people who went out west were given land if they settled on it and improved it. There is more surface land on Mars than on the Earth, because most of Earth is covered with water. People could be given private land if they go there and improve it; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Super China

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702303443904575579070132492654.html?mod=WSJ_hp_MIDDLENexttoWhatsNewsThird#ixzz13hMe6XfE= Communist China is making a super computer. Super computers enable nations to encode messages and to decode secret messages. They allow space ships to fly to other planets and also can direct ballistic missiles. While we all buy things from China all the time, we need to remember that China is not a free nation. It is a Communist totalitarian nation. They don't have freedom of religion, they don't have political freedom either. You can vote for the Communist party and that's your only choice. A super computer in their hands is not a good thing for those of us in the Free World. While we rightly worry about Islamic extremists who are out to kill us in terrorist attacks, the danger from Communism still exists. Cuba, North Korea, Vietnam and China are all Communist nations and all are still ready to destroy us if they had the chance; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Puff on This

RJ Reynolds Ordered to Pay $80 Million in Wrongful-Death Suit In 1964, when I was nine years old the Surgeon General of the United States released a report that cigarette smoking was hazardous to your health. Let me make that clear, smoking cigarettes are dangerous and you should stop smoking immediately. Cigarettes are bad and smoking them may cause you to die. I have never smoked even a single cigarette, not even a puff of one. I don't like being around cigarette smoke. If you smoked cigarettes after 1964 and got sick as a result then you have no one to blame but yourself. The cigarette companies are in the business of selling cigarettes, not giving health advice. They are going to downplay the dangers and pretend the upside of smoking is much greater than it really is, just like every other company in the world that sells products. A woman was awarded $80 million because her father smoked cigarettes his whole adult life and died at age 78 from lung cancer in 1996. He had thirty years of medical evidence that he chose to ignore. He lived to be 78 years old. Lots of people don't live anywhere near that long. Both my parents were long dead before age 78 and it was not due to smoking. Everyone dies of something and you don't need to get $80 million when it happens; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Are We Not Men?

A man has been physically altered to look like a tiger. Teeth are filed down, implants for fangs, tattoos of stripes on his skin; surgical implants for whiskers, all kinds of physical alterations have been done on this person. From a distance he dos look a bit like a tiger. But he is not a tiger, his is a man. A sick, deluded man who has been operated on by greedy manipulative surgeons who took his money and told him he was becoming a tiger. The liberals tell us that sometimes a man is trapped in a woman’s body or vice versa. Only surgery can correct this defect they tell us. Again, greedy doctors without morals will tell this woman she will become a man. The will cut off her breasts and main her sex organs so she can pretend she is a man. In California they actually pay for prisoners to get sex change operations as if it is important medical treatment for a real disease. She is not a man after that operation, anymore than the other man is a tiger. It is simply a greedy medical establishment playing along with sick people who need complex treatment for mental conditions. Not every disease or condition can be cured by surgery. The doctors who perform these modifications are committing malpractice and violating the oath, first do no harm; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Ammo and Fingerprints

In 2011, California will require that all persons who buy handgun ammunition will be required to fill out a form, sign the form, and leave a thumb print. What a stupid waste of time, effort and money this will be for firearms owners and gun store owners. Someone gets murdered. A 9mm handgun was used as the murder weapon. So police are to go to every store in the state that sells 9mm ammo and track down every person who purchased 9mm ammunition? That would be tens of thousands, perhaps even hundreds of thousand of people and if you go for a couple years, it could even be millions of people. This law will more likely be used as a way to harass lawful firearms owners and gun store owners and employees who fail to comply with some minor technical aspect of the law. This type of gun control is totally pointless for the purpose of preventing criminal acts. It only causes an increase in the cost of doing business, makes it less desirable for large companies to sell ammunition in the state and gives an opportunity to oppressive governments to run companies out of business. I suspect that is the real motive for many of those who vote in favor of laws of this type. They don't want people to have guns and so they simply increase the amount of red tape it takes to buy a weapon or to buy ammo; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Liberal Courts

Supreme Court Refuses to Block Ban on Gays Serving Openly in Military This is one of the reasons that court appointments are so important is that every major social issue that the liberals have been unable to push through the Congress, state legislatures, or initiatives voted on by the people, they will try and get to the courts. Liberal judges tend to be activists and will often go far beyond the intent of the founders or whoever wrote the original law. The military ban on homosexuals serving in the military will not be blocked by the Supreme Court. With President Obama appointing extreme, left wing, radicals as members of the Supreme Court it is important that we have had the other members appointed by more conservative presidents. Forced racial integration, abortion on demand and special rights for homosexuals have all been foisted on the people by the courts. If the people wanted these changes, then they should have voted for representatives to enact these issues as laws. That would have avoided much of the unrest and trouble associated with these court rulings because the people would have been ready for these social changes; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Tired

Rep. Joseph Cao Calls Christian Group 'Ignorant' for Costing Him Election Conservatives are tired. We are tired of voting for people who run on conservative platforms and then act liberal. Here in California our governor ran as a rather conservative governor. Once he got in office he lost several nasty battles trying to act conservative. Once that happened, he wanted to be like so he started to govern like a liberal. Then the media liked him and he got good press and his opponents praised him. Conservatives had no where else to go so we voted for him a second time, hoping he would get better. He did not. He was better than a liberal, but not by much. Now conservatives are tired. We are tired of having to pick the lessor of two evils. We will no longer vote for false conservatives. We want change and if we don't get it there will be third parties that will give us that change. Republicans have a chance to make some changes in many state and at the Federal level. They better, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Use Less

In California we have a water shortage. There is no long term plan that I am aware of to increase water supplies to the state, only pleas that we conserve water. In California we have terrible traffic jams. There is no long term plan that I am aware of to build more freeways in the state, only pleas to take rapid transit or drive less. In California we have a severe electric energy shortage. There is no long term plan that I am aware of to build more power plants in the state, only please to be more energy efficient. You can't conserve your way to prosperity. You can't conserve your way out of these problems. Conservation only works as a stop gap measure until new water supplies can be obtained, new freeways built and more power plants constructed. We have no plans and no money to fix these problems. Our new governor is responsible for many of these problems from his first two terms in office. I hope he has learned from that experience and is able to fix these problems, but I doubt that he will even try; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Camel Nose

Women-Only Swim Hour for Muslims Makes Waves on Campus - ParentDish Another organization has knuckled under and caved in to the demands of Radical Islam. In America we pride ourselves on diversity and the melting pot of cultures. People come from all over the world and they contribute to our unique American way of doing things with the things of value their culture has to offer. In turn, they become American and do things the American way. For Radical Islam, there is only one way. The way of the seventh century. They way of the primitive and barbaric Radicals that only see women as property. The real problem is not one of letting a few women swim in a pool without men. The real problem is the nose of the camel in the tent. Once the nose gets in, the whole camel will follow. Foot washing stations in restrooms and private rooms for prayer will next. Later the students will want all the Muslim holidays off from school. The cafeteria will at first have to serve a few Halal meals, then eventually serve only Halal meals. Once they have these issues resolved, they will begin to edit the content of the class lectures and textbooks so that they teach nothing that is offensive to Islam. Eventually, they will teach only Islam; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

No Murder

US Staff Sgt. Calvin Gibbs Accused of 'Unspeakable Cruelty' in Afghanistan Our enemies use a steak knife to cut off the head of a non-combatant reporter. They video tape the incident and then post the video on the Internet. They are the example for others, and they go on and on to try and kill more people that way, particularly non-combatants. Four of our soldiers may have murdered three civilians in Afghanistan. Our military is prosecuting the soldiers involved in these incidents. Our military does not condone barbaric behavior. Our society does not accept criminal acts. This is the difference between us and the radical Muslims who are at war with the West. We function under the rule of law. They function under the rule of Sharia Law. Their law says it is okay to lie, cheat, steal and murder to advance their goals. Our laws say that murder is wrong and will be punished; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Shria, Not OK

http://content.usatoday.com/communities/ondeadline/post/2010/11/judge-blocks-amendment-to-okla-constitution-banning-court-use-of-islamic-law/1?POE=click-refer Seventy percent of the people in Oklahoma voted to prevent judges from using Islamic Law in court cases in the state. Before the election, Muslim leaders said this law was unnecessary, since Shria Law would never apply in Oklahoma. Of course, as soon as the law is passed, Muslims sued the state to prevent is from being implemented. Naturally, power hungry judges resent this and have already put a stop from allowing the implementation of this law. Seventy percent of the people are not enough to insure that a law should be implemented. It is ridiculous that this law is being held up in the courts. The judge should have tossed out this case on the first day. The people of any state have the right to determine what their laws will be and if they want foreign or Shria law to apply to them. This is one of the reasons people don't want to vote. Some judge will simply come in and invalidate the law, overturn the law, or suspend the law from implementation. Judges should interpret the law when there is some vagueness that needs interpretation. This law does not fit that category. The people should remember this judge and either vote her out, or impeach her; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

No Shria Here

The state of Oklahoma has voted 70% in favor of banning Sharia Law for use in the state. The law will prevent the judges of the state from using Sharia Law as a basis for any legal decisions that may be handed down in Oklahoma. In recent years US judges have used European law to guide them in legal decisions. In Europe, some judges have used Sharia Law as a basis for some of their decisions. I fully agree with the decision of the people of Oklahoma. There is no reason whatsoever for any legal process in any state to use any law other than US law and the laws of that state. California judges should not cite Oklahoma law. Oregon judges should not cite Japanese law. No American judge should cite laws from any other state, nation, organization or religion. The people of the United States have the right to determine what laws they will live under. Representation is a fundamental right in America and no one here voted in favor of Sharia; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Repeal Some Laws

What Federal laws should the Republican repeal? Almost every Federal firearms law written in the 20th or 21st Centuries. The states should determine what they will allow. There are few if any crimes being prevented by the majority of those Federal laws, they are simply increasing the cost of firearms and restricting ownership to the rich. The Civil Rights Act of 1964. Most civil rights are already guaranteed by the Constitution and so we don't need the Federal government to add more rights to that. Too many times the Federal government has tried to regulate private behavior of private companies, organizations that are not the business of the Federal government. If a restaurant does not want to serve Blacks, or Whites, or Gays or women then the law should not force them to do so. It is private property and the marketplace will determine if that is a good idea. Most fair housing laws should be repealed. I should be able to rent or sell my property to whoever I want without the government telling me who I have to sell it to. If I want a good price then I will sell to whoever shows up with the money. If I would rather only sell to Asians, or tall people, then that should be my business, not the governments business. You see the doctrine behind all this is that in matters of private property the owner should generally be able to do what he wants to do with his property as long as there is no physical tangible harm to anyone else. If you can't get the job you want or buy the house you want or live in the neighborhood you want to live in, then too bad. It's not a right to be served at a restaurant or to live in certain neighborhoods. It is a right to do what you want with your own property and to associate with who you want to associate with. The government should not discriminate against it's own citizens but the citizens don't owe each other that duty; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Republicans vs Democrats

The last two years the Democrats have run the nation into the ground. The national defense has languished even though we are at war all over the world. We have cut our ability to wage conventional and nuclear war even as Communist China, Iran, North Korea, and Venezuela have continued to arm and rattle sabres. Taxes are high and the unemployment rate has not been this bad since the Great Depression. The only thing the Democrats have been willing to do to fix the problem is to bail out banks and big companies. Those banks, insurance companies and car companies should have gone bankrupt, been reorganized as smaller, more competitive companies and the free market would have fixed the problem without cost to the taxpayer. We need to get tough with Communist China and demand that they adjust their currency according to market forces, and that the must import American goods and food on the same fair trade policies that are used in American markets. We need to control our borders, if a Mexican farmer can walk across the border to work in America then a terrorist can walk across the same border to do us harm. The Republicans should not compromise, they should be as hard and doctrinaire as the Democrats, that's what the SGT Says.

Get It Done

The Republicans have won the House and made gains in the Senate. They need to do what they were elected to do by the people. The people are fed up with high taxes, government regulations, government scandal, governments that give themselves huge retirements, governments that want to take our guns away and take away rights we have had for centuries. The Republicans need to jam through bill after bill to repeal the Obamacare bills. They need to repeal so many of the stupid laws that have been jammed down our throats for the last ten, twenty, even fifty years by various administrations. Even if the Democrats in the Senate fail to pass them and even if President Obama vetoes them, they need to pass those bills. The Republicans were not sent to Washington to compromise. The Democrats had unrestricted power for the last two years and the nation has been plunged into one crisis after another. They raised taxes, increased regulations, and transferred money from hard working Americans to crooks, incompetents, and the lazy. The Republican need to fix those problems or they may be voted out in favor of a third party candidate in 2012; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Election

In California, Democrats took over the governors office and kept the Senator. I think both of these were terrible choices. I also think that in large part the Republicans can only blame themselves. This is a typical example of what Republicans have done many times in recent years and has caused them to end up losing. Senator Dole and Senator McCain were okay as Senators, but they were not very conservative, and they were terrible candidates. Meg Whitman and Carly Fiorina were terrible candidates. Republicans are a minority party and need their base to work hard for candidates, get out the vote and give money. These candidates had money but they had not enthusiasm among the conservative base. Republicans ignore the base at their own peril. They will vote Republican, most of the time to vote against a Democrat, but the base can't always be counted on to do that. Sometimes they will stay home or vote for third parties who are more conservative. That was enough for Whitman and Fiorina to lose their elections. If Republicans are to win the presidency, they need a charismatic and conservative candidate to win; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Election Night Advice

They early returns seem to indicate that the Republicans are doing well. I hope that is true and that the Tea Party and Republican candidates sweep into office at the Federal, state and local levels all across the nation. With great power comes great responsibility. Too often the Republicans have held power, sometimes even both houses and the president and they don't do enough. They pass tax cuts, but don't make them permanent. They repeal a few tiny bits of gun control but not the really big gun control laws that make no sense. They trim and nibble but don't do the big things that will really made a huge difference. If the Republicans actually win big then they need to act big. Cut taxes big time, large cuts. Cut spending even more. Get ride of the perks that Congress gets from themselves, cut their own retirements and health care. Repeal much of the Federal gun control laws, build a fence along the Mexican border, win the War Against Islamic Radicals, and expel illegal aliens by the tens of millions. That's what we conservatives are voting for, not just a slowing of government regulation but a roll back. More freedom not less, and get people working again. Don't bail out banks and large companies, let them fail and reorganize, just like the rest of us do when we do something stupid. The newly elected conservatives need to do things that are big, not small; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Vote Them Out

Tomorrow is election day in California and we get to vote for lots of important offices. I am supporting Meg Whitman for governor. While I don't like her pro-choice stance and I suspect she is way too liberal on many social issues, she is far better than Jerry Brown. At least she has run several businesses and understands that high taxes and more regulation will only continue to drive California into the dust. We have the highest taxes in the country and the highest unemployment and Jerry Brown's only solution to that is to increase taxes and increase regulation. He was our governor before and he was a disaster for this state. He says he learned from his mistakes. Well he had two terms before and did not seem to learn from the first one, how many tries should he get? Brown is against the death penalty and anti-gun. He will be just another tool of the big government unions and that means higher taxes and fewer services. No thanks. Carly Fiornia is my choice for United States Senator. Like Meg Whitman she has run a business and knows how important it is to pay low taxes and have few regulations to deal with. Barbara Boxer has been our Senator for over twenty-five years. If you can't get done what needed doing in 25 years then you will never finish. I can't think of a single piece of legislation that had her name on it that has been passed in that time. Boxer is pro-gay, anti-gun, and only cares about the military when it can get a few jobs in her state. In most cases I am voting for Republicans and anti-incumbent. Our state is in disarray and is not getting better. We need to eliminate the career politician and start putting business people into politics for a term or two and then back to the private sector where they will have to live under the laws the foist onto the rest of us; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
